RSS is for Nerds
About the App: NewsMix combines your RSS feeds and your Twitter stream and reformats it to look like a news magazine (think The Week.) This app is Twitter-centric: It's easy to feel the massive undercurrent of tweets close to the surface, since most peoples' Twitter content is both more voluminous and more dynamic than their list of RSS feeds. We like the way NewsMix segregates video and uses hi-res images when they're available, but otherwise it's just a simple, unalloyed content reader.
About You: You are an aesthete who gets most of his or her news from a well-used Twitter account and doesn't need any more curation beyond a good selection of people to follow. If you like NewsMix the best of this bunch, it also means you value the iPad for its ability to take all that damn ugly Internet and make it look clean. You also want to drink straight from the tap: There are no fancy algorithms deciding what you see or don't see. This is the straight dope from sources you pick.
